Turning Oranges into... Orange-ade? A WHOLE different Trip Report 😜

So I don’t know what I’m doing anymore :rofl:

Originally I planned a FARTS long weekend trip then pushed it because I didn’t have my stuff together. So this weekend was to be our 4 parks 1 day weekend with a sprinkle of F&G. Then DH hurt his back… really bad.

And he’s just barely o.k. now but I decided to cancel our 4P1D plan and refocus on F&G +. There was no more rescheduling. And some of yall know I. NEED. THIS. TRIP!

Oh… did I mention I’m here at Coronado. With very, VERY loose plans for our park day tomorrow. Epcot then HS. That’s all I got!

Here’s my ORIGINAL TR post. Gives much, much detail that I wont repeat here.

But this TR… this one is the remix!

Nice! That’s one of my favorite pools!

That pool was COLD. We opted for the hot tub- in and out. Now were just sitting around it. Were not hungry but wondering if we should grab something. The QS is sooooo far away. No way were eating breakfast here.

It’s nice but crowded.

We are in RANCHOS. So far away. I would have loved closer. But there’s a convention and we have a King Standard room :woman_shrugging:

DH says this isn’t real fire. It’s “Disney fire”. Whatever!

It’s concrete like everything else, including the water. (DH and I joke about how nothing is real)

I hope you have a great time! I only stayed at Coronado once for a short trip and never made it to the pool. Looks like an awesome pool!

I hope you have some wonderful Orangeade and that some vacation time actually helps DH feel better :crossed_fingers:

Thank you! He is… for now. He’s very optimistic :smile:

DH does as well :joy: I tell him to let me have my delusions.

I think it will. He’s been doing a lot of hard physical work lately. Disney will be much less strenuous :melting_face:

:hourglass_flowing_sand: Well I hit the snooze button one too many times and ended up with an 8pm SDD :face_with_diagonal_mouth:
It’s the only ride we’ve never done. And after Fantasmic I know we will not want to walk alllll the way back to Toy Story Land. Still deciding what to do. I have no actual research done from thrill data or TP for HS LLs this evening as this wasn’t the plan. I just have to wing it, lol. This is totally not normal for me!

Hope you and DH have a great time. Hope his back feeling better. I’m a big fan of Coronado Slrings.

:speaking_head: I got to talk Disney with a family from Canada last night. Very nice people! Gave them some tips for the kids and getting SDD and PPF. Hopefully he didn’t oversleep like I did.
There is a vending maching full of deoterant by the pool bathrooms. That’s a first for me.
We have Rise at 6pm and GotG at 10:30. Missed the VQ but that’s ok.

He’s not 100% but he is feeling better. Thank you. We’re still going to take it easy. No use tempting fate.
